Fender has revealed details of two new exotically finished American Acoustasonic Stratocaster models: one with a Cocobolo body and White Limba neck; and one with a Ziricote body and Black Limba neck.

Aside from the aesthetic changes, the models share the same specs as the existing American Acoustasonic Stratocaster, with the Fender and Fishman-designed Acoustic Engine offering 10 different sonic combinations via their trio of pickups: under-saddle piezo, internal body sensor and N4 magnetic.

You'll need deep pockets to bag one of these beauties, however, as they'll cost $3,299 when they land on October 1.

If you remain skeptical about the design, Fender has captured some killer performances recently, from the likes of Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Striking Matches and Naia Izumi.
